DH loves football. Specifically our city's team. And they lose allllll the time! I used to sort of dread becoming the football widow but he takes E with him when he watches and I get plenty of me time othereise. But I'm totally over it by Feb for sure!!

Neither my DH or I watch any sports at all (gasp). He loves sports but prefers to play them or on rare occasions go see them live. The only one that doesn't bore me to death is soccer!

My dad watches football so it was on in the house when I was a kid, but I find it tedious. I don't tend to be interested in professional team sports. Luckily my husband shares my view so I barely even notice that it's football season. My coworkers are really into their fantasy league, but I don't participate.
The only sports we really watch at home are the Olympics.

I'm lucky that we don't have cable and dh can't watch the majority of college games.
I just hate how looooong and sloooooow the games seem!

DH abhors sports.
I'm all about SEC volleyball! I am an insane person when it comes to a volleyball match.

I didn't grow up in a football fam and am just kind of "whatever" about football. DH is the same. We watch games sometimes, and our local team is awesome, we just don't go crazy super-fan.

Oh man, we love some NCAA in our house! Not so much into NFL. My husband isn't obsessed, but we definitely partake together and it is so fun!

@Mrs.Pinecone316: I agree about Fantasy. I only have so many brain cells to commit to football.
@CHICALGOBEE glad to have a kindred spirit

@lemondrop: I am not a football fan (or any other sports, either), and thankfully neither is my husband! It's kind of nice, because we forget it exists until other people bring it up. We used to live in Austin, TX and would get blind-sided by game-day traffic, because we just didn't know or care!

Football season SUCKS. My husband does a stupid Fantasy Football league, so he has to watch EVERY SINGLE FOOTBALL GAME. And that means Xander's watching TV all the time too because it's just ON. And I had to do a stupid solo bedtime already so he could set up his stupid Fantasy league lineup. And what little time we have to spend together, we don't spend together anymore because FOOTBALL IS ON! Ugh ugh ugh. Is it March yet??

I love football but I totally get why other people might not be into it and I've also sort of grown out of it a little in recent years (since LO was born). We used to watch every Patriots game no matter what but now we just watch when it's convenient and I don't miss it too much. I'm also in a casual fantasy league at work and I enjoy it but don't too caught up in it. I don't mind when other people are into it, and I also don't mind when they're not.

I love football season. We regularly have friends over to just watch games, eat, hang out, let the kids play together, etc. I think it's a great excuse for fun gatherings. Football has been a huge part of my husband's life so we definitely have games on a lot, which is fine with me.
BUT, I'm lucky because he has never done fantasy. His quote is "Football was my real life for so long, I don't need it to be my fantasty life too".
Also, despite being much more ingrained in football than your average person my husband would NEVER miss an obligation with family or friends because he needs to stay home and watch a football game. Nor does he ever expect that we make plans around football. If he's home and gets to watch, awesome. If not, oh well. We have friends who will miss events like birthday parties if it conflicts with watching a game on TV and honestly I find that to be a really sad way to live your life. I would have a real issue if my husband were that way.
